Abstract
In earlier work we have shown that adults, infants, and cotton-top tamarin monkeys are
capable of computing the probability with which syllables occur in particular orders in rapidly
presented streams of human speech, and of using these probabilities to group adjacent sylla-
bles into word-like units. We have also investigated adultsŐ learning of regularities among el-
ements that are not adjacent, and have found strong selectivities in their ability to learn various
kinds of non-adjacent regularities. In the present paper we investigate the learning of these
